Test field

  Copyright: © ifas

The ifas test field covers an area of over 1250 m² and includes various test benches. Using the latest measurement technology, a wide range of tests can be carried out at ifas, from large-scale test benches to a variety of tribometer and wear test benches to the smallest components in microsystems technology.

The infrastructure of the test field provides the basis for a wide range of test trials. Different aggregates can be used to provide hydraulic or pneumatic power to the test benches. Furthermore, facilities such as the climatic chamber and the sound measurement room are provided to perform appropriate tests.

Information on the ifas infrastructure facilities can be found here.


Component test benches

Fluid power components often have to be tested for function, efficiency and service life. With our test stands, we can perform this for both hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

You can find an overview of our component test stands here.


Material testing

Even the smallest detail is essential for fluid power systems. With our materials test stands, we can provide decisive measurement results. These include in particular various tribometers and fluid test stands.

Detailed information about these test benches can be found here.


System test benches

Fluid power systems often have to be tested in practice before they can go into series production. With our test benches we can test system assemblies, controls and communications.

You can find out which system test benches are available at ifas here.


Other test benches

Not the right one for you? We often design individual test benches for research and industrial projects or adapt existing test benches to your requirements. Please contact us to let us know out what you have in mind.
